It’s finally here, in all of it’s yet-to-be-finished glory.
Basically the room is painted, bedding on the bed, two things I have to hang are hung and now it’s time to accessorize, accessorize, and accessorize! My favorite part, but also the part that I think is most challenging.
We did run into one little snafu once the room was painted. The curtains I had bought from Land of Nod looked horrible with the paint color. It was like, a sea of pink – and not in a good way. Thankfully, the Customer Service at Land of Nod is AMAZING and even though I ordered the curtains months ago, and no longer have any of the original packaging, I can send them back, no problem.
Here’s the room:
Here’s the deal with the room -it needs some relief from pink and that was very apparent with the curtains. Currently the curtains can be seen (and just a sliver of them) in the first and second pictures above. They’re going back tomorrow. Since I think I’ll be getting Merchandise Credit to Land of Nod, I’m leaning toward these curtains as a replacement:
Though, there are also these:
The third option I’ve toss around is ordering plain white curtains from L of N and then adding a bit of ribbon, similar to these from PBTeen.
I’m not sure which direction to go, but need to decide ASAP!
Also, to add relief above the crib, I’ve been looking at art on Etsy and a few other stores. I mocked up some examples with the art I’m considering. Any of them strike you?
I think I would mat them all in white, for sure, but I’m not sure on the frame. Do I frame them in white or is that too random? Do I paint a frame a dark coral? Espresso wood to match the rest of the room?
Needless to say, I’m struggling here on how to offset all of the pink! The paint is much brighter than I anticipated so now I’m trying to work with it, because there is no way I’m having the hubs repaint the room. I enjoy being married :) and I know that conversation would not end well.
So there ya go! That’s the progress we’ve made, though there is still lots more to come!
I’d love you to weigh in on curtain choices and art for above the crib. I have my faves, but I’d love to know yours!
